I know you all know you should clean your makeup brushes, right?! Let’s break it down a bit further though. Some SERIOUS yuckies can hide out in your make up brushes. Think bacteria, dirt and sebum. Gross. Here we are, fighting the war against wrinkles and problem skin and we are rubbing bacteria, dirt and sebum all over are face daily. Really counterproductive don’t you think? Plus, makeup brushes can get really expensive-investing in the right brushes can make all the difference in how your makeup looks. So once you drop some cash on your brushes, it only makes sense to take care of them so they will last longer.
So, let’s get down and dirty and wash those brushes weekly-your skin will thank you.
You’ve probably seen some gimmicky makeup brush cleansers. Don’t waste your money. Using what you’ve got is totally acceptable when it comes to getting those brushes clean!
What You’ll Need to Clean Your Brushes:
- Soap-Think baby shampoo, castile soap, clarifying shampoo or vinegar.
- A jar halfway full of HOT water
- Paper towels
>>One extra tip: ALWAYS dry your brushes flat or tilted slighting downward. You don’t want wetness to rest at the base of the brush. This could loosen the glue and cause hairs to fall out. <<
DIY Daily Brush Spritzer:
2 ounces of alcohol free Witch Hazel (find it HERE)
Spray 3-4 spritzes on each brush after use.
Citrus oils are very cleansing and will help disinfect while dissolving dirt and sebum.
